About the Book:

THE LAST BULLY … a charming anti-bullying story Happiness Begins With Respect Hugo is a little starfish and so it is not surprising that in this story he comes across several bigger fish in the ocean. Sadly, they are bigger fish with the wrong attitude – they’re bullies! After seeing his friend getting bullied, Hugo decides that enough is enough. He forms the Anti-Bully Club and teaches the bullies a valuable lesson about respect. By working together as a group, Hugo and his friends manage to show the bullies that there’s always a bigger fish in the ocean and that happiness comes from respecting others, not bullying them. THE LAST BULLY is a confidence-boosting book for children, showing them that being different is OK and the best way to deal with bullies is to tell someone about it. This tale demonstrates how to deal with one of the biggest issues we face in today’s world.

My Thoughts:

My children are one, four and five so I really liked sharing the message with them of “No Bullying”.  My two older kids had an anti-bullying rally at their elementary school so the book came just in time for me to help them understand the meaning of being a bully and why it’s important for them to not bully others and more importantly stand up for others as well.  This book provides both in a very simple and easy way for kids to understand the message.  It will require reading the book multiple times but I don’t mind sharing the lesson with them at least once a month so they continue to learn the behavior.  Hugo is a little starfish that started an Anti-Bully Club because his friend was being bullied, that was a huge factor for me because I had the opportunity to share with my children what they should do if they see a friend being bullied.  Today too many people just stand around and watch, even worst video tape other people being bullied and abused.  I am teaching my children to take a stand.

I loved the message of Hugo being scared but still speaking up to help others and because of his courage others came to his aid when he needed it.  I also found that the book had a few Spanish phrases written in the story.  Nothing big but it was a great twist and a chance for my children to pick up some words and phrases.  Overall I would say it’s a very cool book especially with all the cases of bullying in schools I like that I can teach my children the lesson of Respect for Other at a young age with The Last Bully.

You can buy the book online from Amazon.  You can also see what other Hugo books are in the series.
